Giants DT Marcus Thomas pleads with 'Madden 13' to fix his profile photo

Giants defensive tackle Marcus Thomas -- not to be confused with running back Marcus Thomas who had a cup of coffee with the Lions in 2008 and waived by the Broncos in 2009 -- is fed up. The six-year vet thinks it's been long enough for the folks at Madden to put a face with a name. Specifically: Thomas' face with his Madden bio. After exhausting all options (we're speculating here; for all we know, before Tuesday the extent of Thomas' gripes may have consisted of cursing EA every time he fired up a game), the New York defender took to Twitter to publicly lodge a complaint.

Thomas then joked that his fate rested in his ability to avoid the turk in the coming days:

But thanks to the power of the internet, word got back to Donny Moore, whose Twitter bio reads "Madden NFL Live Content Producer & Ratings Czar." Moore was apologetic and promised to fix the mistake.

This prompted a change of heart from Thomas, who tweeted "Thanks, Mr. Madden. I love you." We're still not clear if Thomas knows that John Madden isn't actually a programmer, just the face of a game that's been around for nearly 20 years. Either way, mystery solved, all is right in the world. Now if Madden could just find a way to help the Jets score a touchdown...
